Another hotel option is The Inn at Villanova University, which reopened in
July 2017 after renovation and has 56 guest rooms, 14 meeting rooms and a 5,000-sq.-ft. ballroom. New Four Seasons, Aloft, Cambria, W and Element hotels will open in
2018 and 2019.

It doubles as a 5,000-sq.-ft. event space for up to 150 guests for cocktail hour and includes four large-screen TVs that can be used during an event.
